FME 2015 Sneak Peek: Desktop Updates

“Top Ten” articles are great for marketing and SEO purposes, but not so good for when a new FME version is released; not unless you’d like to read an article titled “760 Noteworthy Updates to FME2015″ or “280 Developer Updates for FME2015 the FME Evangelist Flagged as Great”.

That would certainly be a big block of imposing text. So, to save you all, I’m going to cut back on that and give you just a flavour of what we at Safe are excited about for FME2015. It’s not the full list by any means, just a taste of what is to come.
